A sticky situation...

October 8, 2007 11:28 AM

So I got around to cleaning off most of the road tar on my bike. Unfortunately there is still quite a bit of it baked onto the bottom of the exhaust pipes. That’s going to be completely nasty to clean off. I think I’ll try and make time this week to clean it little by little.

Also pulled the plugs on my bike last night and they look just fine. Not carboned but not lean either. Just right. That makes me feel a little better since I haven’t completely tuned the carbs yet.

It was far too hot and muggy to do anything yesterday. If I’d had my choice we would have sat around in shorts doing nothing but we had to go to a baptism for my niece. That wasn’t too bad except that churches give me a headache and we were in there for a little too long for me.

I’ll try and pick up where I left off at home when I get back today. I’ve got to pick up my daughter which slows me down a bit but I should still be able to get some laundry done and get started on organizing the office so I can empty it and build the custom desk and shelves in there. I worked out the details using QCad last night so all I need to do is acquire materials and build the damn thing. Have to pick up an actual stud-finder so I don’t have to use drywall anchors for the shelf brackets but that shouldn’t be too expensive.

I figure the new design should let me store the boxed (plastic toted actually) sci-fi books under the back corner of the desk and give me room for all the technical and craft/art books on the shelves. I’ll have to measure how high I want it but that shouldn’t be too much of an issue because it’ll likely be only a little higher than my existing desks so the lateral files fit underneath it.

As usual there’s a lot to do...
